8B: Jeffrey McCrann Loves Fright Night (Longer and Gayer Version)

In 1985, little gay fans of horror got two amazing gifts: Nightmare on Elm Street 2 and Fright Night. Horrormonger Jeffrey McCrann joined us to talk about the latter, a thoroughly entertaining and thoroughly queer vampire featuring Stephen Geoffreys, Amanda Bearse and Herman’s Head himself, William Ragsdale. This version of the episode is the longer one, for listeners who’d rather listen to discussion of Fright Night along with hot takes on Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway and Bernadette Peters, but you can listen to the shorter version here.
